Peterborough Reads has created a series of writing competitions for children to take part in during the lockdown period.
Earlier this year, Year 4 pupils from 20 local primary schools were judges for the Peterborough Book Awards. There were categories in the awards - Best Picture Book, Best Chapter Book, and Best Poetry Book.
We have taken inspiration from the winning books and authors of each category to create a competition for local children. Once a fortnight, we will release a new competition on this page, and each challenge will come with the opportunity to win a bundle of books.
Week one: Funky Chickens by Benjamin Zephaniah
Children are tasked with writing a poem inspired by Benjamin Zephaniah
